Your choice of stationery, and in particular the invitation, will be the first indication to guests as to the style of wedding to expect. Here are some ideas to think about.
1) "Save the date" If it's too early to send out invitations, these cards will communicate the important date to your guests.
2) Invitations The most important stationery which communicates the wedding date, time and venue. Most people include details of where their gift list is registered.
3) RSVP cards Some couples choose to send an RSVP card with their invitation so that guests can easily communicate whether they are attending or not.
4) Directions/Accommodation If you are inviting guests from afar, a list of nearby hotels and taxis is a useful gesture. Directions to the ceremony or reception can also be helpful.
5) Order of service This contains the chronological order of the ceremony, including any Songs, prayers or readings. Check it with the vicar or registrar before printing.
5) Seating plan Displaying the tables for the wedding breakfast, the seating plan will let guests know which table they are seated at.
7) Table place cards/numbers These inform each guest of their specific position for the Wedding breakfast. A great opportunity to be creative or develop your wedding theme.
3) Menu Some couples place the wedding breakfast menu on each table so the guests can have a sneaky peek at what they are going to be eating.
9) Thank you cards Ordering thank you cards before your wedding may feel a little keen. however, this can be a blessing if you are going on your honeymoon straight away.
